Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Webcast Find out what threats lie in wait for your business throughout 2010 and how to avoid them, with this free to view audio slideshow from The Register, in association with MessageLabs.

Last week we invited Freeform Dynamics' Jon Collins and Paul Wood of MessageLabs to bring their crystal balls to the Reg studio and give us their predictions on the shape of the security threat landscape for 2010.

The duo kindly obliged and set about casting their expert gaze over botnets, reputation attacks, social ecosystems, malware, spam and how world events will have an impact. Jon and Paul also left us with some very helpful “so what” analysis to help you with your thinking.
